Here’s the thing: There are as many different ways to be a fashion person as there are people in fashion, which sometimes means that Fashion Week can look a lot like convening the League of Nations. Case in point: meat-eating, death row executing, no-apologizing Republican Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, who wants to be your next president, showed up and partied with models during New York Fashion Week.
Certainly there’s nothing wrong with Perry attending fashion week — it really does take all kinds! — we just aren’t entirely sure it’s his scene. Nevertheless, Page Six reports the prospective Commander-in-Chief had dinner in New York City with Donald Trump (so fashion!) and afterward, went to the Sherri Hill show and immediately went backstage, where 30 some odd models were clad only in bathrobes.
Perry chatted with Kardashian kult member and “model” Kendall Jenner, and he apparently “lit up” when Trump pointed out she was Bruce Jenner‘s daughter. She’s only 14, so while he can’t count on her vote, maybe he could get a celebrity endorsement deal from her dear old dad.
So was that the end goal of Gov. Perry’s Fashion Week attendance? Stumping for votes? Securing Donald Trump’s campaign donation? Being a creepy old man? Sounds like to us he managed to do all three.
